Metalcore Powerhouse What Lies Below Release Massive new EP ‘Darker Colors’

On Friday October 13th Harrisburg, PA based progressive-metalcore band What Lies Below released their massive new EP called ‘Darker Colors’. Vocalist Andrew Watson provides some insight on the meaning behind the release below:

Darker Colorsas a whole discusses the dark side of life we don’t want to face. I wrote this EP during one of the most depressing years of my life and the lyrics reflect that. There is no silver lining, just pure putting thoughts and emotions on paper. This is What Lies Below’s most emotional journey to date and we are so excited for the world to hear it. Andrew Watson
